Nonadditive entropy : the concept and its use ⋆

  title={Nonadditive entropy : the concept and its use ⋆},
  author={Constantino Tsallis}
The thermodynamical concept of entropy was introduced by Clausius in 1865 in order to construct the exact differential dS = δQ/T , where δQ is the heat transfer and the absolute temperature T its integrating factor. A few years later, in the period 1872-1877, it was shown by Boltzmann that this quantity can be expressed in terms of the probabilities associated with the microscopic configurations of the system. We refer to this fundamental connection as the Boltzmann-Gibbs (BG) entropy, namely… CONTINUE READING
